Welcome to my academic website!
I am both an applied linguist and an English as a foreign language teacher. I try to understand why learning languages other than our mother tongue can be so painstaking and what we can do to help those who haven’t given up on it. I tinker with verb morphology in English L2, classroom-based research and curriculum design, CLIL and EMI programmes among many other things.
I am based in Catalonia, where everybody is Catalan/Spanish bilingual and where I juggle with at least five languages (the fifth one being my mother tongue Romanian) on a daily basis.
You can find me at the Education Faculty, at the University of Lleida (Spain).
